The anatomie of abuses: containing a discouerie, or briefe summarie of such notable vices and corruptions, as nowe raigne in many Christian countreyes of the worlde: but (especially) in the countrey of Ailgna: together, with most fearefull examples of Gods iudgementes, executed vpon the wicked for the same, as well in Ailgna of late, as in other places, elsewhere. Very godly, to be read of all true Christians, euery where: but most chiefly, to be regarded in England. Made dialogue-wise by Phillip Stubs.
